      Should be a unidirectional trail—that is, DH only. Was possibly the best trail in BVille when it debuted; however, it eventually became very rocky so traction isn’t great, so bombing is not what it could be and once was. Need one of the dozens of BVille trail crews for a day or two, or some forced labor during the nearby school’s recess for a month, to clear the rocks and restore Tristan’s glory!

      I'm a new rider but I love this trail (going down). Nice flow with several places to really get moving. I can't say I'll ever try to go all the way up it on a bike though.

      Fun if you’re going down, and going fast. Not too bad steep if you’re going up
